With the rapid expansion of free to air Australian TV (why pay for TV with more add's ??, ie Fox, fools) we have gone from 5 to 15 channels (this is
excluding Pay TV, if you have 15+ free, why pay for more rubbish with all the same content, so your a month ahead, woohoo ??).
The only good thing to come from this expansion is the fact they are depserate to fill air time & are screening all the 'old classics',
unfortunately I have to disagree with Family Ties being one of them, oh how boring, I cant believe we actually watched that show when I was a kid,
I agree it would be good to get TV back to the 'old moral standards' (though yes some were un-intentionally racist in todays world), Green Acres was
on not long ago here & it was great to see (though before my time).
Family Ties has been on here for a few weeks now, but when its a choice between that & Mork & Mindy, give me a comedian over 'moral lessons' any
day, oh how dull.
We've even got some real oldies, like 'On The Busses' & 'Love Thy Neighbour' on for many months, regular spots in the weekly programming. I'm
loving all the old shows being on of late, reminds me of being a kid (& now I know what they are saying/implying), but Family Ties has to be one of
the most painful shows out there. Give me Mrs Graingers Pussy any day.
